    Great victory! But without three key Chinese players in the game, that’s not complete. China may be testing the real strength of the Philippines in that game.

    Pakialam natin kung hindi nglaro yun 3 mongoloids. Well, they will win on us ONLY if they are cheating. Patunay lang yun na nandaya sila kaya nanalo sa FIBA 2015. What if kung sa ibang bansa ginawa yun FIBA 2015, I don’t magagawa nila yun mandaya. Nice one RDO, salamat sinapak mo yun isang tsekwa! What do they think of themselves, tatahimik tayo?? Ulol nila, di lahat ng Pilipino tumatahimk kapag ginawa ng di maganda.
